Two-time USA World Championship team member Maggie Vessey is a vehicle for change, bringing fashionable, runway-worthy outfits to the sport of track. Vessey has been ranked as high as fifth in the world in the 800 meter run but uses her time off the track honing the eye she’s developed for fashion, working with prominent Los Angeles designers.
Tall and beautiful, Vessey has been named “the most stylish athlete right now” by New York Magazine. Her motive, however, goes beyond eye-catching aesthetics. Vessey’s work is a testament to women in sport, proving that excelling athletically doesn’t require sacrificing her beauty. Vessey hopes to empower women to feel comfortable and confident pursuing sports. In 2017, the U.S. State Department invited Vessey to be part of its Sports Envoy Program in Morocco, where Vessey engaged with young girls for the purpose of instilling confidence through sports.
